Rumsfeld Guantanamo detainee due process trial and the alleged post-abortion syndrome.[18] Her work as a writer focuses on law, women, and family issues.

Before joining Slate, Bazelon was a senior editor of Legal Affairs. Her writing has also appeared in The AtlanticMother JonesThe Washington PostThe Boston GlobeThe New Republic, and other publications.

Bazelon is also a senior research scholar in Law and Truman Capote Fellow for Creative Writing and Law at Yale Law School. Bazelon is affiliated with the Law and Media Program of Yale Law School. Between 2012–14, Bazelon made eight appearances on The Colbert Report on Comedy Central to discuss Supreme Court and anti-bullying issues.


In 2016, Bazelon wrote an article in The New York Times on the legalization of prostitution, discussing the decriminalization of johns, pimps, and brothel owners as a means to protect sex workers.

Writing on bullying

Bazelon wrote a series on bullying and cyberbullying for Slate, called “Bull-E”. She was nominated for the 2011 Michael Kelly Award for her story “What Really Happened to Phoebe Prince?”The three-part article is about the suicide of Phoebe Prince, a 15-year-old girl who committed suicide in South Hadley, Massachusetts, in January 2010, and the decision by the local prosecutor to bring criminal charges against six teenagers in connection with this death. The Michael Kelly Award, sponsored by the Atlantic Media Co., “honors a writer or editor whose work exemplifies a quality that animated Michael Kelly’s own career: the fearless pursuit and expression of truth.” Bazelon’s series also sparked heated reaction and a response from district attorney Elizabeth Scheibel, who brought the charges against the six teenagers.

Bazelon authored a book about bullying and school climate published by Random House, titled Sticks and Stones: Defeating the Culture of Bullying and Rediscovering the Power of Character and Empathy. It received a front page The New York Times Book Review review, which called the book “intelligent” and “rigorous”, and described the author as “nonjudgmental in a generous rather than simply neutral way,” and “a compassionate champion for justice in the domain of childhood’s essential unfairness.”In The Wall Street Journal, Meghan Cox Gurdon called Sticks and Stones a “humane and closely reported exploration of the way that hurtful power relationships play out in the contemporary public-school setting”.


Bazelon has reported critically on the pro-life movement and opponents of legal abortion, including “pro-life feminists” and proponents of the concept of post-abortion syndrome, while being supportive of abortion providers and pro-choice federal judges. She has described crisis pregnancy centers as being “all about bait-and-switch” and “falsely maligning” the abortion procedure. Bazelon has discussed her support for legal abortion on the Double X blog.

In 2018, Bazelon published a number of articles on criminal justice reform.In April 2019, her book on this topic, Charged: The New Movement to Transform American Prosecution and End Mass Incarceration was published by Penguin Random House. The book focuses on the role of prosecutors, the history of “tough on crime” politics in elections for that office, and the new generation of reformist prosecutors.

Emily Bazelon Interview

In July 2009, the New York Times Magazine published Bazelon’s interview with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. Discussing her view of Roe v. Wade in 1973, Ginsburg commented, “Frankly I had thought that at the time Roe was decided, there was concern about population growth and particularly growth in populations that we don’t want to have too many of. So that Roe was going to be then set up for Medicaid funding for abortion.”

Bazelon did not ask any follow-up question to what some interpreted as Ginsburg endorsing a eugenics-based rationale for legalized abortion, i.e., as a remedy for “populations that we don’t want to have too many of”.Bazelon was criticized by some conservative commentators for not doing so. Bazelon responded to the criticism, stating that she is “imperfect” and did not ask a follow-up question because she believed that Ginsburg’s use of “we” had referred to “some people at the time, not [Ginsburg] herself or a group that she feels a part of.”
